Create Click Events For Command Buttons Created Dynamically At Runtime
Apr 2, 2013
I have a userform that has one combobox at the top created manually. When the userform is opened, the user select an option in the combobox (these options are taken from a range on 1 worksheet). From the selection of the combobox, I use the comboxbox's change event to create and display 5 columns of textboxes and 2 columns of command buttons on the userform.
The number of rows of textboxes created depend on the option selected from the combobox since each option links to a different range of cells. Each of the 5 textboxes in each are set to be ".enabled = False" and display text as per the cell values within a range on another worksheet. 2 Columns of command buttons are created at the end of each row of textboxes - 1 is enabled and the other is not.
The creation of the textboxes and command buttons works as required. However, I am having problems with setting click events for each command buttons. When the 1st column of Command buttons are created, I need the click events to be created and filled out with 2 actions:
1. Enable all textboxes in the same row as the command button
2. Enable the other command button in the same row.
Here is the code I have so far that creates the textboxes and command buttons.
Each of the 5 textboxes and 2 command buttons have a unique name so the 1st row will have textbox and command button names of cTxtA1, cTxtB1, cTxtC1, cTxtD1, cTxtE1, CmdAmend1 and CmdConfirm1. The 2nd row will have the same names but with 2 on the end and so on. The bold sections is the code for the creation of the command buttons that I want click events for.
Private Sub CboTeamSelect_Change()
Application.ScreenUpdating = False
If CboGroupSelect.Value = "" Then Exit Sub
Dim cTxtA As Control, cTxtB As Control, cTxtC As Control, cTxtD As Control, cTxtE As Control
Dim CmdAmend As Control, CmdConfirm As Control
Dim iNum As Integer
Dim TxtTop As Long
Code to create buttons on a userform. I have adapted his code to do what I want. The code he gave me was:
In the Class Modules:
All buttons when created are coloured yellow. When a button is clicked, it turns blue (to indicate that the button was clicked. However, my problem is that when another button is clicked, it also turns blue as coded. This means that both are showing blue colour. I want all other buttons to turn yellow and only the button clicked should turn blue.
I have a userform with a single blank multipage. At runtime additional pages are added, the number of pages depends on input from another userform. Six frames, containing labels, textboxes and comboboxes are then added to each page.
I need to be able to use the textbox and combobox change events of these dynamically created controls to perform lookups and calculations. Although I can name the controls at the time they are created, it is not feasible to write code specifically for each control (I can have over 1,600 text boxes distributed over 9 pages, for example).
Having searched for some time on how to achieve this I believe using a class module is the way to go. However, how to use a class module is just not sinking in I'm afraid.
HTML Private WithEvents mpTextBox As MSForms.TextBox Private WithEvents mpComboBox As MSForms.ComboBox
Private Sub Class_Initialize() Set mpTextBox = MSForms.TextBox Set mpComboBox = MSForms.ComboBox End Sub
Private Sub mpComboBox_Change() MsgBox "ComboBox value has been changed." End Sub...........................................
I have a code that adds a couple of ComboBoxes to a UserForm (the number of ComboBoxes is variable). Now that I want to control a certain ComboBox based on the selected value of another ComboBox (change or click event), how do I do that via VBA code?
I am at it again and maybe I am asking to do something that is not possible. I am trying to build a program that will allow the user some flexibilty down the road if I am no longer here to support my code. I have a workbook that contains several sheets. The sheets are labled by equipment name. The Sheets themselves contain specific data with regards to the equipment. What I want to do is as follows. Populate a user form with command buttons based off of the worksheet names. The reason for this would be if 2 years from now we add a new piece of equipment all the user will have to do is add a sheet in the workbook and the user form would reflect the new sheet with a new button. Like wise if I delete a sheet in the workbook the user form would refelect that change as well.
I am having a excel vba code that copies tab from different excel file and then i want to use in sql query. It is always giving me error saying that "The Microsoft Access database engine could not find the object 'rahul'. Make sure the object exists and that you spell its name and the path name correctly. If 'rahul' is not a local object, check your network connection or contact the server administrator."
Though, when i rerun the macro after reopening the excel file, it is working fine. Seems like tabs dynamically created cant be used. Is their any way to get it done at runtime? I want to delete new created tab once data from new tab is inserted to required tab.
my macro calls first copyAllSheets(filename) and then writeSheet().
Private Function copyAllSheets(ByVal fname) Dim destSheetCount As Integer Const FUNCNAME = "copyAllSheets" On Error GoTo ErrorHandler Set wb = Workbooks.Open(fname) destSheetCount = ThisWorkbook.Worksheets.Count + 1 wb.Worksheets("Buyer").Copy after:=ThisWorkbook.Sheets(1) ThisWorkbook.Worksheets(destSheetCount).Name = "impBuyer"
This is part of code so probably it wont be easy to understand the flow. but mainly i want to know how can i have newly created tab as table_name.
I have 100s of name ranges in my spreadsheet. I am using a series of drop down boxes for the user to select the info that they want to see. Based on the dropdown box, the macro "dynamically generates" a range name from which to pull the info.
For instance, if they Select Manager = Terry, Analyst 1, and Month = Jan, then the range name would be JanTA1
The if statement would dynamically create this name by concatenating the info
If manager = Terry mnger = "TA" if analyst = 1 anlyst = 1 if month = Jan mnth = "Jan"
rangename = mnth & mnger & anlyst
So, I am dynamically creating the range name based on user selections...then to display it, I want to set the display cell = to the value
For a form that dynamically creates a series of text boxes and labels, does anyone know how to change the caption of a dynamically created label to display the value of a cell in a worksheet? The cell in the worksheet changes according to input on the text boxes. In the form's code, I have:
Dim newLblFreq As MSForms.Label Set newLblFreq = Me.Controls.Add("Forms.Label.1", "lblfreq" & i, True) newLblFreq.Caption = Range("V" & i).Text & " Hz"
But once the label is created, the caption won't change, even if Range("V" & i) changes...............
Is it possible to change the color of buttons or command buttons? There does not seem to be any place that allows this under properties for buttons, although there does for command bars. However, I've tried recording a macro as I change the color, but nothing get's recorded so I'm not sure what the syntax would be.
I have a spreadsheet with several buttons and I'd like them to change colors as they are pressed so it's possible to see what you've already done. And then, as soon as any other cell on the sheet is changed, the buttons reset color.
I use the following (work in progress) function to add the controls to the userform (usually added to page or frame).
Code: Public Function AddControls(ByVal objTarget As Object, ByVal strUiName As String) Dim rngControls As Excel.Range, rngProperties As Excel.Range Dim rngControl As Excel.Range, rngProperty As Excel.Range Dim objControl As Object
With shtFormUI Set rngControls = .Range("D2:D" & .Range("D" & .Rows.Count).End(xlUp).Row)
Now I need a means of trapping the controls events. I thought I could use a class, e.g.: cFormEvents
Code: Option Explicit
Public WithEvents lblLabel As MSForms.Label Public WithEvents tbxTextBox As MSForms.TextBox Public WithEvents cbxComboBox As MSForms.ComboBox Public WithEvents lbxListBox As MSForms.ListBox Public WithEvents cbtCommandButton As MSForms.CommandButton
Private Sub lblLabel_Click()
It seems I cannot reference the controls because I they are added at runtime. For the given example, I want to run whatever procedure name appears for lblPrimaryContact in column AC (click event). So in my userform module I instantiate the class, but I get an error when I try and reference the control:
Code: Set m_clsFormEvents.lblLabel = Me.lblPrimaryContact Error is "method or data member not found".
Any alternative method to grab the click event for the control added at runtime?
Is it possible, that while running code that the code can say initiate the click event on a command button on another sheet.
Say that I have a button on Sheet1 called "wkscmd_DisplayDEI"
Behind that button is obviously some code. I want to know is it possible that while some code is running ( code does not reside on the module page for Sheet1 that it can send a pseudo click to the button?
I am having trouble working through the examples given on other posts for this topic. I have a userform that creates a number of controls at runtime. One group of controls is a series of textboxes and a label underneath that sums the values of the textboxes. When a user changes the value in a textbox the label needs to update the sum. I have read about created class modules to define the event but it is all going over my head.
I have code that creates a row of controls on an MSForms.Userform at runtime.
I would like the user to be able to save these controls so that they are available the next time he opens the form. The user would be able to add or delete a row of controls and save them AND the values that he has set. This allows great flexibility for each session using the form.
The values aren't a real problem - I've been using the SaveSettings function for the design time controls values. The runtime controls are combobox, textbox, listbox, checkbox.
I don't want to design-time build the controls and just toggle the visible property (not a good solution for my app).
I have created a toolbar with buttons that run macros. When the macro is assigned to that button the macro will run fine. However, when the file name of the excel workbook has changed (file relocated or name changed) then the macro (button in the toolbar) does not work and has to re-assigned in the toolbar. Is there anyway of getting around the problem of having to reassign the macro to the toolbar button whenever the file name/directory changes.
I have created a button name "Add Power Source" on excel sheet that adds a table and a button(named "Add Row") to the sheet.Whenever the user clicks the "add power source" button a table and a "Add new row " button is created .This "Add new row" button is used to add rows to the table. Now suppose the user has pressed the "add power source" button 5 times,so that there will be five table on sheet and each having a "add new row " button associated with it.When the user wants to add a new row to the table 2 say .How will I come to know in which table the rows are to be added using VBA.
I've created a ListView4 object on MyForm and called it 'MyListView'. I'm able to successfully display it and populate it with a list of items (2 columns). So far, so good.
I'm trying to intercept a double-click on an entry in the listview so I can process the selected value and close the ListView. Unfortunately, the MyListView_DblClick event apparently does not get triggered (I've also tried other events, but can't get them to work also).
Suppose in a work book I have a list for data in 5 rows.
1 2 3 4 5
Is there a way to randomize the data with one created button click (like hyperlink button used for linking) so that it may show any random output like 2,1,4,3,5 etc. Next time another click on randomize button creates another set of totaly random order of the 5 data sets.
My program(which is an add-in, or will be when I've finished writing it) creates a new worksheet called "Groups Summary" I would like this sheet to be locked so that the user can not modify anything on it. I would also like that if they double click a cell this will launch a userform if based on certain conditions.
I believe this code would have to go in the worksheet itself, so the question is how do I get the macro to enter code into a worksheet that it creates?
Is there a way to write it in a standard module and then automatically copy it when the worksheet is created?
I have a range of cells (A1:D5) identified within a worksheet (worksheetA) as part of a user input form.
When a certain condition exists, a routine is executed that copies a range of cells (C1:F5) from another worksheet (worksheetB) to this defined range. The copied area consists of two command buttons. They get copied and pasted no problem.
When I want to reset (blank it out of its contents) my range in worksheetA from I copy another range over of just a range of blank shaded cells. However, doing this does not eliminate the command buttons left in the range on previous pasting.
How do I delete these command buttons left from previous pasting activities when I wish to reset my range?
I am experiencing a run time error with my command in a UserForm.
Run time error '9': Subscript out of range.
Error occurs on the following row: With Worksheets("Math Lineup").Range("D3")
Below is the code I am using:
Private Sub CmdAddWrestler_Click()Dim RowCount As LongIf Me.txtWrestler.Value = "" ThenMsgBox "Please enter a name", vbExclamation, "Wrestler Name"Me.txtWrestler.SetFocusEnd IfRange ("D4") = txtWrestler.TextRowCount = Worksheets("Match Lineup").Range("D3").CurrentRegion.Rows.CountWith Worksheets("Math Lineup").Range("D3") .Offset(RowCount, 0) = Me.txtWrestler.Value End With txtWrestler = "" End Sub
I made a userform to calculate the net weight of a package by taking the gross weight and deducting the amount of boxes included in the package. The most boxes possible is 25, so I used 25 command buttons numbered 1 to 25, so users only have to press the desired amount of boxes for the calculation to begin.
But that also means I've got 25 subs containing the same formula, and that's a bit much. I'm pretty sure this could be done more efficiently,
